On our recent vacation to the UK, we took a few days out to get some sun in Sitges, Spain, a quaint beachfront town on the Costa Barcelona.
Renowned for it’s 17 beaches, for our first visit we wanted to stay on the beachfront and selected Hotel Calipolis, and we’re pleased we did.
Located centrally along the Passeig Maritim, Hotel Calipolis is a spacious, modern hotel, with plenty of amenities to make any stay more than comfortable. Even though you won’t be spending a lot of time in them, the bright rooms, mostly with water views, are large and comfortable. The big balconies connect guests with the fresh air, retractable screens filter the beaming Mediterranean sun to allow the windows to be open all hours.
From the sumptuous breakfast buffet in the Mirador Restaurant, full of fresh local flavours and breakfast staples to the sunny, pool-side Terrace Bar the Hotel’s five restaurants, bars and lounges keep guests satiated throughout the day. Passeig Maritim is filled with restaurants so there’s plenty of dining and drinking options nearby when you want to venture away from Hotel Calipolis.
The Hotel’s many meeting rooms were busy during our stay, businesses taking advantage of the quieter shoulder season to have conferences and meetings away from the big cities. The small but well equipped fitness centre lets you get a workout before meetings or hitting the beach, across the street. If, like during our stay, the wind picks up at the beach, move to the sheltered but sun-filled pool deck to work on your tan.
The Hotel’s location, 15 minutes walk from the train station, allowed us to easily explore the town’s central streets and the beautiful beach promenade. Being about 30 minutes by train from Barcelona-El Prat Airport, and 40 minutes from the heart of Barcelona city centre, makes a visit to the City easy too. We look forward to making another, and longer, visit to Sitges and Hotel Calipolis will be on top of our accommodation options.
Hotel Calipolis is located at the corner of Av Sofia and Passeig Maritim in Sitges, Spain.
